Ah, another major board game app release...and it's only February. 2019 is shaping up to be a good year.

Today's belle of the ball is The Castles of Burgundy from Digidiced UG, a company with a reputation for converting heavier euros (and by heavier euros, I'm referring specifically to their port of Terra Mystica) and doing it with panache. They've really gotten the hang of getting a ton of information into a tiny, tiny space.

Blurb time:

Digidiced wrote:
The Loire Valley during the 15th Century. As influential princes, the players devote their efforts to careful trading and building in order to lead their estates to prominence. Two dice set out the action options, but the players always make the final choices. Whether trading or livestock farming, city building or scientific research, many different paths lead to the prosperity and prominence of the players! The many ways to gain victory points in this building game require careful thought round after round along with extensive planning ahead. Thanks to the different estates, the game remains challenging for the players for a long time, as no two games play out alike. The winner is the player with the most victory points at the end of the game.

Features

You can nab it at the links up at the top of this article (no need to go searching the App Store by your lonesome), and then you can come and complain in the comments about the price. Or not. I prefer the latter, but no one listens to me. Have at it!
